The following excerpt is from an article outlining Ohio State Sociology Graduate Student Amelia Li's recent accomplishment at an IAPHS Conference in October.

"Five Win Poster Awards at October Conference"

The Poster Session at the Austin conference featured research on a diverse set of topics, much of it coming from early career population health scientists in public health, sociology, gerontology, medicine, public policy, and other disciplines.  As Jennifer Ailshire writes in her blog, “I’ve attended many conference poster sessions over the years, but this was the most interdisciplinary group of scholars and range of topics I’ve seen.”

For the first time this year, the meeting offered awards for outstanding posters.   Thanks to Poster Judges Rich Carpiano, Justin Denny, Jennifer Beam Dowd, and Matthew Trujillo for making the hard decisions!  The winners were:
